May 11, 2017 — Marriott’s Waikoloa Ocean Club, overlooking beautiful ‘Anaeho’omalu Bay, is now open on the western shore of Hawaii’s Big Island. Inspired by the island’s lush green flora, pristine waterfalls, fiery red volcanos and black lava beds, the resort’s beautifully decorated one- and two-bedroom suites celebrate the rich culture and diverse landscape of this one-of-a-kind island.

Marriott’s Waikoloa Ocean Club shares amenities and activities featured by the Waikoloa Beach Marriott Resort & Spa, including swimming pools, with one just for the kids, a fitness center, tennis facilities, lei-making classes and hula and ukulele lessons. Plenty of upscale shopping and dining are all within walking distance, and nearby on the Kohala Coast two championship golf courses test the skills of all levels.

Those looking for a calming sanctuary and a place to recharge their batteries will find relaxing and rejuvenating treatments inspired by eastern and western cultures at the Mandara Spa, located within the Waikoloa Beach Marriott Resort & Spa. A signature treatment is the Hawaiian Lomi Lomi massage, the traditional healing massage of Hawaiian royalty.

Of course, no vacation to the Big Island—or to Marriott’s Waikoloa Ocean Club—would be complete without an authentic Polynesian luau featuring food, dancing and music under the star-filled sky, at the Waikoloa Beach Marriott Resort & Spa.

Beyond the resort and its on-site beach, adventure awaits. Trails through a lush rainforest can be explored on foot or horseback, and ancient lava tubes and black sand beaches take the breath away. If sights are set even higher, amazing discoveries can be found near active volcanos or the snowcapped summit of Mauna Kea, considered one of the best sites in the world for stargazing.

Beaches on Hawaii’s Big Island are usually less crowded and offer a wide variety of recreational options. Guests can snorkel through the calm, crystal-clear waters at Hōnaunau Bay or learn to surf at surf schools and beginner wave spots along the Kona coast.

Whether it’s the call of adventure or the promise of a rejuvenating escape, an excursion with the family or a dreamy south Pacific getaway for two, Marriott’s Waikoloa Ocean Club is the ideal destination to become immersed in the rich culture of Hawaii and experience life in paradise. Aloha!
